For winter enthusiast that love the snow Beechwood State Park is an awesome place to do some snowshoeing, cross country skiing or winter birding. Several trails lead you to the shores of Lake Ontario, through groves of pines, beech woods, stately hardwood trees that offer forest birds a refuge. Other trails will take you through what use to be an active family fruit farm back in the early 1900's with old apple and cherry trees. And another along Maxwell Creek and Maxwell Bay. Follow Maxwell Creek south across Lake Road and you'll find a waterfall.
